Manual Cinema Presents: Leonardo! A Wonderful Show About a Terrible Monster


Wowsers !! What a total treat of a show…jam packed full of creativity and talent, be it paper cut outs, furry puppets, illustrations or an endearingly quirky live soundtrack and songs…

Adapted from Mo Willem’s much-loved books, Manual Cinema knit their uniquely inventive skills together to present this story of a monster struggling with being scary and big life decisions surrounding friendships. Leonardo is a terrible monster, and who desperately wants to scare the tuna salad out of someone…until he meets the most scarediest kid in town that is. One visit to see this show may not be enough as you’ll want to watch both the big screen and the artists below it as they beautifully create the story before your eyes….

Filled with wonder, humour and oodles of warmth, you are sure to be charmed by this real gem of a show.

My Mini reviewer said: ‘ I liked how they used paper, toys and themselves to make the story – it was super creative…’
